Back to school "Conversation"

Today was Alan's first day of summer school and I had to wake him up.  For those of you struggling with sleep issues, I have to point out that this is a relatively new development.  He NEVER used to sleep in during the summer.  There ARE perks to the teen years!

So I went to wake him up and he wasn't very enthusiastic.

Mom:  You start summer school today.

No response.

Mom: You are going to school today to see Ms. Betty.

Alan opens his eyes and looks at me.

Alan: Lunch?

Mom:  Yes, I'll pack you a lunch.  (Even though summer school is only a half day, I figured he would need a snack and I would pack it in his lunchbox.)

This gets him out of bed and downstairs but not moving quickly.  I hurry and pack his backpack.  I put the lunch in it and the two iPads.  Alan is watching me carefully.

Alan:  Swimming?

Mom:  No, that is camp.  That starts in 3 weeks. This is still summer school with Ms. Betty.

Alan:  Bus?

Mom:  Yes, you ride the bus to summer school.

There are no more arguments.  He just got up and started going about his morning routine.  

These "conversations" are few and far between, but wow, it is pretty cool when they happen!

  2. Great blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring
    writers? I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost
    on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free
    platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?

    There are so many options out there that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any tips? Appreciate it!

    1. Thank you! Just started late 2012 but I wanted to be a writer when I was young.

  4. Hi there! I know this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does building a well-established blog such as yours require a large amount of
    work? I'm brand new to writing a blog but I do write in my journal every day. I'd like to start a
    blog so I can share my experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new aspiring
    blog owners. Appreciate it!

    1. I don't know that I would call my blog "well established" but thanks! ;-) I spend 10-15 hours every week writing my blog entries and checking out other people's blogs for ideas, content, etc.
